Even though hundreds of Aphex Twin wannabes came out in the late '90s, some new artists have created a sound of their own instead of playing some monotone ambient techno. Simply put, Brothomstates (Finnish native Lassi Nikko) is one of those imaginative newcomers. This EP introduced the new, musically grown-up Brothomstates and promised a lot for the following works.

The first Brothomstates release on a "real" label featured a whole sound that was somehow surprising. Kobn-Itch-Ey had been quite monotonous, so this EP's turn to a much richer soundscape was a nice addition. Moreover, Brothomstates (alias Lassi Nikko) started working on his very own style on this record, tossing different elements around in his music while keeping it all together. The only loss on this EP is its brevity: It has only three songs. Also, the fact that it was pressed only on 12" vinyl made it impossible to reach a mainstream audience.

This one needs to be remastered for a vinyl or CD reissue, since it's one of my favorite albums ever.
Anyone know what the deal is with the end of 'Bathroom Tests'? Track seemingly finishes, then something new starts only to get cut off a few seconds after.
In an IRC interview from around when this was released, Lassi Nikko said he was done with trackers for the time. This EP, then, is a shift from the masterful Screamtracker and Fasttracker modules of his Dune years. Instead of clever samples and advanced tracker tricks are sparse soundscapes with gloomy synth pads drenched in delay and reverb. Only his trademark filtered and distorted drums are retained. I've heard this criticized as derivative of Aphex Twin's "ambient" material. While that's not inaccurate I think it misses the point. There's a distinct mood and aesthetic. While the tracks easily settle into the background, a close listen reveals attention to detail very atypical of a free web release. The only glaring flaw is the jarring introduction of "Mr. Y". Another reviewer described the first track as "good but not very special" and I think this is a fair description of the whole release. However, I think it is special, because I have never heard anything quite like it, and it's not for lack of seeking.
Interesting first release from a talanted musician. First track "Itch" is good but not very special, reminiscent of Autechre from the later 90's. It is with the melodic masterpiece "Dekc" that Lassi Nikko's genius becomes apparant. It starts off with a beautiful melody trickling down your spine for 2 minute with a subtle 80's sounding synth embellishing the main melodic theme. Then the theme shifts and the drums kick in with a standard-sounding hard IDM-beat, suitable for the track. With 2 minutes of the track remaining, the synth takes the lead and makes you forget about everything else while the drums comes to an end. The track leaves you unsatisfied, craving more of that otherwordly melodic art. I wouldn't mind if "Dekc" was 20 minutes long with a slow build, going deeper into that other world that you get a glimpse of while sinking into those melodies. Unfortunately, none of the other tracks will caress your ears as "Dekc". "Whind" is very beautiful, I think it is too short with a lot of unrealized potential. The 3 last tracks are longer, more sparse and analougue-sounding. Great music. Could use a proper mastering, definatly excusable since this is self-released.
